Upcoming Outings

For over 70 years the IRRS has held hundreds of outings to locations of railway interest, both in Ireland and abroad. The nature of outings and activities have evolved with the developments of Irish railways. Examples include visits to Irish railway engineering facilities (exclusive to IRRS members) and diesel hauled excursion trains to unusual locations. Forthcoming Society outings are detailed below:


An outing has been arranged to travel to Mallow and Listowel to see the Mallow Level Crossing Control Centre (LCCC) & South Cabin and visit the Lartigue Monorail and Museum on Saturday 16th March 2024. The outing will travel from Dublin to Mallow & Tralee by Iarnród Éireann service train and between Tralee & Listowel via private coach. A three-course lunch has been arranged for the group at the Listowel Arms Hotel and this is included in the ticket price. Click booking form below for more details:
